Have you ever thought about how many different sounds you hear while traveling? Beeping, talking, announcements, music… all of which make the journey more exciting, giving you an adrenaline rush, but at the same time, it can be pretty stressful. To improve passengers’ experience, some airports are testing this new trend of well-being travel: silent airports.
What is a silent airport
Imagine you mute all the airport announcements. It is as if you put on noise-canceling headphones, and everything becomes quiet.
The airports aim to make the traveling experience more relaxing for passengers by reducing the noise pollution inside the terminal. Some exemptions exist for emergencies or covid-19 measure announcements.
What to expect from the visit
While traveling through a silent airport, you can expect a less stressful experience overall, but at the same time, you should be attentive to your flight details and updates. The responsibility for the flight updates and time planning of your airport visit is left solely up to you!
